In 1950 “Don Juan del Águila” was founded as a cooperative winery, which in the 1970s produced up to 2 million kilos of grapes.
The progressive abandonment of vineyards, due to the loss of rural population in Spain, and the crisis of the sector means that in 2007 the company’s social model changed. To this day, it is still owned by the village and by the almost 100 winegrowers who contribute the raw material, betting on quality wine, on the internationalisation of markets and the uniqueness of wines made from centenary Grenache.
The winery’s only “commercial” objective is to ensure that winegrowers are rewarded more and more for their work, and that we can preserve the heritage of the old vineyards in the Gredos area.
Currently 250,000 litres of wine with Denomination of Origin are produced in the winery.
